Recently a debate has been going on in our country on inflation, but very few people have come up with solutions. I want to bring some suggestions in  front of the readers and the policy makers so that  the inflationary pressures in our country could be eased. But first let me make it clear to those with no background in economics, the causes of inflation. Inflation occurs, in the long run, when money supply increases in the country. If the government runs a budget deficit, then it sometimes tries to fund the deficit by printing more money, but as money supply increases, "too much money" starts chasing "too few goods" and bids up the price. This is the case in Pakistan, expenditure has soared but revenue generation has not been able to keep pace with expenditures and as the consequence of it the government prints money to finance the deficit. I won't advocate cutting down massively on expenditures. Because some of the expenditures on infrastructure, education and health that the government is undertaking, is necessary for economic growth in the long run. But I do think that the government should bring tax schemes for the agricultural sector, especially for large land holdings (making sure that appropriate gaps are left for the small farmers, so that they don't get burdened). Agriculture is a major component on our GDP and bringing it in the tax net will boost our revenue. Taxing large land holding of agricultural land as opposed to agricultural output, will also encourage more effective use of the land. It is time to cut down on inefficient subsidy to petrol. Our prices of petrol have been massively subsidized by the government, this is wrong on three accounts. Firstly, it becomes a major drain on government revenue and hence causes budget deficit. Secondly it encourages over consumption of petrol and also use of inefficient technology, hence not only causing global warming but also becoming an impediment to change towards more efficient and greener technology. Thirdly the problem is related to the current account deficit export deficit over import. If the price of petrol is allowed to rise, then consumption of petrol will decline, hence reducing our import of oil and easing the current account deficit and the pressure on rupee to devalue. Clearing hurdles in the supply side also eases inflation in the short term. But our main focus should be on the long run. Similar strategy has worked in Bolivia, where the inflation was around 24000%. Fiscal reform was also undertaken in Germany after WW1 to end hyperinflation. I hope that our economic managers will put effective strategy to combat inflation.
